drug test

yes I was in to take a drug test this morning, and failed on the basis of having vicodin in my system. first of all I do not use drugs, but have taken pain killers in the last few days because of a bad tooth, so is there a way that on a drug test they can tell that it was just my rx or does it just show up as an opiate

They can tell that it wasn't heroin and if you explain about the Vicodin you should have no problem.

True hydrocodone will usually only be picked by a drug screen for about 2 days after use.

This is not really the forum for getting information on how to beat a drug test.  Although I don't endorse beating drug tests,  I do believe in the freedom of information.  Therefore, post your question on alt.drugs.hard and I'm sure someone will answer.

Hi,

  yes it does show up as an opiate on a drug test, i have found that it is safer to ask the doctor for a non-narcotic pain-killer, that will help just as much and they are not addicting.

I am so worried I took a drug test today and forgot to add that I had taken Lortab(hydrocodone) a half a pill about 10 days ago. They told me if I didnt pass I wouldnt hear from them. But the test takes about 5 days to get back. Im sooo worried. I totally forgot it was a very stressful 6 hr hiring process.Who can tell me how long it stays in your system?
Thanks in advance

I hurt my back and took two vicodin without knowing that I would have to take a drug test.  How long does it take for vicodin to get out of my system?

I recently got the hook up on a beer delivery job. Ihave to take a urine test soon. I am a chronic head,been smoking ever since I was 15, now I'm 23. All I have been doing is drinking lots of water and sweating alot. I have also been quit smoking for about 1 week(FOR GOOD). I'm scared because of my choice of wanting to smoke weed, may result in me not getting the job I want. Do you think by sweating and drinking alot of water "ll pass the test.

I smoked methamphetamine last night for about 6 hours....I had maybe 6-8 "hits". It had been the first time I'd done it in about 2 months. Since 6:00am I've drank a huge jug of water and a bottle of cranberry juice. Now if my info is correct meth is water saluable. Therefore I should be in the clear for my drug test tomorrow at 4:00 pm. Right?

Hydrocodone is free from your system in 2-4 days.  Heavy use or higher doses can sometimes extend that period.  I always stop about 3 days before and drink lots of fluids.  Good luck.
